Like its Star Wars namesake, the Wookies marijuana strain is hairy-looking and fuzzy. Although classified as a hybrid, it is a predominantly Indica strain with roughly 65% Indica to 35% Sativa composition. Its more dominant Indica side is what produces an intense yet sedating high. Some circles call it Chewbacca, Cocoon Cookie, or tk91.
|Sativa/Indica %||Indoor Yield||Outdoor Yield||Flowering Period|
|35%/65%||1 ounce per square foot||1 ounce per square foot||7 to 10 weeks indoors, around October outdoors|
This rare hybrid is the creation of a Colorado-based breeder who goes by the name Tierra Rojo. He chose Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) as the mother plant and the hybrid White ’91 for its pollen. White ‘91 is a cross of The White and Chemdawg ’91. The White has subtle aromas and flavors, and White ’91 fixes those shortcomings.
The Wookies plant resembles GSC in structure with heavier trichome production. The nugs retain its premium flavoring. There’s also an added potency and pungency derived from the White ’91 parent. Speaking of potency, the lowest THC level of this “dankenstein” hybrid is 18%. In some cases, the THC can be as high as 21%.

Wookies Strain Effects
Many a Wookies strain review does not recommend smoking (or vaping) this marijuana if you have made plans for the rest of the day — and there’s a good reason! Wookies has some strong sedative effects. Its loud Indica side places most people in a deep couch-lock.
After a long day’s work, however, Wookies works wonders in relaxing your body and mind. A sense of euphoria accompanies the initial high. After your mind has begun to relax, your body will soon follow. In the first few tokes, you’re in a happy space, with a sense of inner peace. Hunger pangs are normal towards the end, so prepare some snacks in advance.
Wookies helps in dealing with insomnia, hypertension, bipolar disorder, muscular dystrophy, and muscle spasms. Sleep takes hold fairly quickly after consuming it, so those with insomnia have the most to gain. Its strong sedative nature makes Wookies a worthy choice for tackling inflammation and body pain. Users with mood disorders or mental stress also stand to gain a lot from this hybrid’s euphoric, relaxing high.
Wookies Strain Fragrance
Wookies weed strain has a bit of an uncharacteristic smell but in a pleasant sort of way. Once lit, this marijuana’s sweet aroma quickly fills the room. Your nose is sure to register a tingling sensation that is reminiscent of scented candles.
The scent is a cross between pine, citrus, and strong gas. Those with a heightened sense of smell might also recognize a hint of licorice undertones.
Wookies Strain Flavors
Flavor-wise, Wookies takes the best of both worlds and blends them nicely. It retains that lemony sour component from its Chemdawg ’91 parent. When mixed with the traditional sweet (and musky) inhale of GSC, the result is heavenly.
With its pleasant blend of lemony, sweet flavor and aroma, Wookies will certainly heighten your senses and let you indulge in a relaxing, euphoric high. Find similar seeds in our online seed bank.

Other flavors include mint and sage. However, these flavors may not be as prominent if smoked or consumed in edible form. However, stuff some finely ground Wookies marijuana strain into a vaporizer, and it is a totally different story. Those earthy and sage undertones will become apparent within the first couple of vapes!
Wookies Strain Adverse Reactions
Wookies weed strain and its strong sedative nature could pose some problems for some. When smoked during the day, the couch-lock effect will make you unproductive for a while. If you try one of the more potent forms, it can cloud your mind. Occasionally accompanied by headaches, dizziness, and paranoid thoughts, these can feel a bit too much for some people. In any case, these effects don’t last for long. And if they do, a cold shower, pot of hot coffee, or a shot (or two) of espresso should help you return to normalcy.
Side effects like dryness in and around the mouth and eyes are common in most marijuana strains, and Wookies is no exception. So, always keep a big bottle of water handy. Take a gulp or two between tokes to keep your mouth hydrated. A few splashes of cold water should do the trick, or a couple of eye drops as for itchy eyes.
You will feel very hungry after a session with Wookies — so hungry that you will want to eat anything you can lay your hands on. Be sure to have enough food around when you’re planning to smoke this hairy herb.
Growing Wookies Strain
Wookies is a clone-only strain, meaning you won’t find seeds right now. If you do happen to find seeds, there’s a very low chance of capturing the exact traits you desire. Growing these clones would require a good deal of experience and patience. Why? Because Wookies plants grow tall and wide with a great deal of leaf production. This means that stuffy indoor spaces are not going to work as well as an outdoor setup. If you still decide to grow these plants indoors, make sure there is ample space and lighting.

During the vegetative period, the leaves at the top will begin to shade out the rest of the plant. Regular trimming of the top fanning leaves will provide more sunlight and space to the bottom sections. This will help the buds grow big and potent in the long run. Wookies plants are more suited to growing outdoors, but you will still need to top them off. Since they are photoperiod, they will flower after reaching a 12/12 light cycle.
If properly tended, the bud production will be dense with hairy, light-green buds covered in trichomes. These buds typically have a very sticky outer layer, making them highly desired by most growers. Wookies is a rare strain that doesn’t have a lot of published information on growing it; however, you can assume this strain likes sun, airflow, and a decent amount of nutrients. At this time, we don’t know how resistant it is or its ideal climate, but sticking close to its Girl Scout Cookies genetics is probably a good idea. Its size and unknown preferences are the main reasons we suggest leaving this one to the experienced growers.
Wookies strain review from those who’ve grown it suggest a flowering time indoors of 49-70 days (7 to 10 weeks). There is some debate as to the sweet spot. When harvested around 56-63 days (8 to 9 weeks), the THC levels are higher. Conversely, allowing the plant the full 70-day flowering time brings out the full terpene profile. Outdoors, harvest in October.
Although not recommended, some people choose to grow these plants indoors. The indoor yield is roughly 1 ounce per square foot.
